Division of Vascular Surgery

Collaborative Care

The Division of Vascular Surgery at NorthShore offers high quality, comprehensive vascular care. Our board-certified specialists provide the full depth and breadth of vascular surgery services and possess the specific expertise needed to precisely diagnose and effectively treat simple to complex circulatory system conditions including diseases of the arteries and veins.

Our experienced team of vascular surgeons, nurse practitioners and support staff collaborate with primary care physicians and cardiovascular and other specialists to provide seamless, coordinated care. As an integral component of the NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute, we work side-by-side with the Institute’s cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons. We provide timely consultations, partner on treatment planning and perform advanced procedures available only at select medical centers.

Endovascular Lab

Innovative Techniques

In addition to traditional open surgical procedures, our highly skilled experts offer minimally-invasive endovascular procedures such as peripheral angioplasty and stenting, stent graft placement for the treatment of aortic aneurysms and carotid stenting for carotid artery disease.

We treat an increasing number of vascular disease conditions via innovative endovascular means, allowing for faster healing, less pain and shorter recovery times. NorthShore’s Evanston Hospital houses a state-of-the-art endovascular suite that provides our vascular surgeons with the latest imaging technology and endovascular instruments for both inpatient and same-day surgeries. Located within the Operating Room, the suite is dedicated to serving the specific needs of our vascular surgery patients.

While outstanding surgeons, our vascular specialists also provide comprehensive medical management using the latest medications as well as sophisticated laser procedures for a broad range of arterial and venous conditions.
